Investments in reference equipment at RISE NMI 2017-2018
|Coordinator||RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - RISE Säkerhet och transport|
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 13 000 000|
|Project duration||September 2017 - December 2018|
Purpose and goal
The aim of the NMI at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB for the years 2017-2018 is to maintain the same Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMC) as before. This also means that the NMI aims for sustained high level of services for industry. To ensure a future operation of the NMI at this level, there is a need for investment in new reference equipment. This project aims at maintaining the sustainability of RISE NMI through investments in reference equipment.
Expected results and effects
The national laboratory of standards, including chemical metrology, at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB are normally managed through two different project descriptions i.e. management and maintenance of traceability to SI and research for the development of the same. In this project, which is a supplement for the period 2017-2018, special investments in new and advanced reference equipment are handled.
Planned approach and implementation
This project manages especially investments in expensive equipment with a minimum of 1 MSEK / pc. In total, the allocation is 40 MSEK for the period 2017-2021, and is aimed at the necessary so-called replacement investments. A survey made in 2015, as well as the submitted application, points out the most necessary investments in priority order. In this first part, in the years 2017-2018, investments in four different equipments are made to a total extent of 13 MSEK within the labs for Mass, Length, EL DC/LF and Time and Frequency.
